The Dominion of Forbidden Planet is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 572 million Forbidden Planetians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altair Four. The average income tax rate is 16.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Forbidden Planetian economy, worth 42.9 trillion Universal Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 74,964 Universal Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, babies are a small but significant export, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Id Creatures and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Forbidden Planet's national animal is the Id Creature, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Forbidden Planet is ranked 203,819th in the world and 6th in Hollow Point for Most Primitive, scoring -117.11 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
